Yeah, I remember this! You're right - sounds like a very simple progression, anyone who plays blues knows this as a simple variation based on E. (Truckin uses a similar line treated Garcia style.)

Thanks guys,not being very well versed in musical terminology I could not express my thoughts very clearly,but I did figure the lick Phil was playing was fairly common and not all that complicated.

Yep, that bass line is the inspiration to the intro of Caution. Many a melody was snipped from television broadcasts after a long day of the "Stanley Cup", that's also code for the Owsley clear.
